METAL ALLEGIANCE

METAL ALLEGIANCE | MAX CAVALERA GIVES THE LOW DOWN ON BEING INVOLVED WITH METAL ALLEGIANCE

METAL ALLEGIANCE began as a celebration of heavy metal, powered by the almost tribal bond shared between the extreme music community’s most revered trailblazers, armed with a list of contributors onstage (and off) that read like a Wikipedia entry on the genre itself.

The band announced the release of their sophomore album Volume II – Power Drunk Majesty via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on September 7th, 2018 earlier this year, as well as releasing the second single last week. The new track features Soulfly main man Max Cavalera and in today’s album trailer, Max discusses how he got involved and what it was like recording with the core four:  https://youtu.be/XkR51IZQ7Ds

Mark Menghi comments, “Voodoo turned out to be a tribal crusher a-la some other influential tribal metal band that we all know and love whom once featured Max. We live in a world of way too much bullshit and hate these days… and as our drummer would say; it’s nice to have a step towards World Peace.”

Alex Skolnick comments, “One of the most distinct tracks on our new album (and indeed, in the entire MA catalogue), ‘Voodoo’ has a hypnotic feel with indigenous percussion, bringing to mind a ritual in the rainforest. We‘re grateful to have the ultimate voice for this track, with a sound that‘ll ll never be mistaken for anyone else: Max Cavalera.”

The thrash worshiping new album merges old-school legends with the modern metallers of the scene to produce groove driven, adrenaline soaked anthems while tackling the frustrating state of the world. The list of musicians for Volume II – Power Drunk Majesty include Trevor Strnad (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER), John Bush (ARMORED SAINT), Bobby “BLITZ” Ellsworth (OVERKILL), Mark Tornillo (ACCEPT), Max Cavalera (SOULFLY), Floor Jansen (NIGHTWISH) and Johan Hegg (AMON). It also marks the return of Mark Oseguesda (DEATH ANGEL) and Troy Sanders (MASTODON).
